This article situates India’s comics history and culture in an international context to analyze what makes it unique. The medium has transformed from socially critical roots in cartooning through the rise of corporate comics, the graphic novel, and a recent turn to alternative comics. Yet, what drives comics in India is a combination of international influences, critically aware creators, and an orientation around community. Through the support of important works, scholarship, and creator’s voices, drawing out this medium’s history reveals that what defines comics in India is a culture of passionate storytellers committed to excellent storytelling.
